GTA 4 Remaster Scrapped
Grand Theft Auto 4 fans may be disappointed, according to a well-known Rockstar Games insider. Rumors and stories have circulated for some time now that Rockstar plans to release a remaster of GTA 4 for current platforms at some point in the future. Like being said, it doesn’t seem that Rockstar has any intentions to release a remastered version of the game.
GTA 4 and the original Red Dead Redemption will not be remastered, according to a Rockstar source who goes by the moniker Tez2. Although Rockstar originally planned to convert both games to current-generation consoles, they ultimately opted against doing so, according to Tez2, citing a ‘reliable source’ who said that such remasters ‘were on the table a few years ago,’

As per a reliable source with clear accuracy on Rockstar plans, remasters of GTA IV & RDR1 were on the table a few years ago, but Rockstar chose not to proceed with the projects in mind.— Tez2 (@TezFunz2) July 4, 2022
The poor reception of the Trilogy DE might be a reason behind that decision.#GTAIV #RDR1
Why Did Rockstar Scrap GTA 4?
Rockstar may have chosen not to convert Grand Theft Auto 4 and Red Dead Redemption because of the negative reception observed with Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, according to Tez2.
Rockstar will release The Definitive Edition of Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, and San Andreas on contemporary platforms by the end of 2021. And although the announcement of these remasters elicited a positive response from some gamers, the quality of the final products was disappointing to say the least.
All three games were plagued by bugs, graphical flaws, and various other faults, to the point that Rockstar had to apologize for their quality.
Rockstar seems to be reconsidering its stance on remasters in light of this calamitous launch. GTA 6 is presently being developed by Rockstar, although it’s not clear what the firm plans to accomplish between now and the game’s release. GTA 6 may not arrive until 2024 or 2025, based on previous rumors.
This implies that Rockstar fans may have to wait a long time for the next game in the series.
